Improving resection rates in borderline resectable pancreatic cancer: Pilot study shows favorable results(Comments Off)
The clinical importance of the Alliance A021101 cooperative group study as well as the design of the trial itself are the focus of this month’s column.
This month’s column summarizes the ALCHEMIST (Adjuvant Lung Cancer Enrichment Marker Identification and Sequencing Trials) platform and how it facilities definitive studies of adjuvant targeted therapies in biomarker-selected non-small cell lung cancer patients.
The S0820 Preventing Adenomas of the Colon with Eflornithine and Sulindac (PACES) study seeks to determine whether two drugs that have shown early promise can significantly lower the risk of secondary colorectal polyp or cancer for these survivors.
This column addresses the efficacy of combining existing approaches with active therapeutic combinations to treat cancers of the stomach and esophagus.
Operative Standards for Cancer Surgery, developed by the ACS Clinical Research Program Cancer Care Standards Development Committee, provides evidence-based guidelines for oncologic resections.
